I wouldn't be against giving him something like a six(or even seven) year deal in the 4M ball park with some sort of limited NMC. Even he deteriorate to a great 3rd line winger in 4 years 4M with the cap likely to go up is tolerable and I myself think he'll just get better in the next 5-6 years.
That's pretty solid cap management. If they can push it towards 3,5 then even better. Then I'd consider a fulll NTC.
Edit: Come to think about it I'd be fine with a full NTC at around 4M as well however at the negotiations I'd be very against it
I see so many other teams get in trouble by handing out NTC/NMC like candy. I'd rather have the Oilers pay more and retain all the power when it comes to getting rid of the player.
Please Oilers, DON"T start giving out a NTC. please!
